Students are shown walking together as the words, Overseas Travel, appear on the screen.

Allison Hopkins is shown sitting and being interviewed: You make your college experience how you want to make it. As soon as I started I got my foot in the door and I started being a club member at Enactus and then those connections I made through Enactus, and with my faculty and other classes, led to an amazing international trip overseas to England that has just snowballed, and there's just more opportunities and doors that just keep opening throughout my experience.
